Sweet dreams.....

Hello and welcome back!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  Ours was very relaxing.  It's time to start in again with my card making (i'm still avoiding the color red, Christmas card overdose).

Do you remember the musical group called the Eurythmics?  A while back I was looking through a catalog and a phrase was featured on a t-shirt.  I bust a gut laughing and knew I could take it and make a spectacular card.  But first the lyrics...

~ScrappyDew file Say Cheese Mice #2 and #3
~Canvas Corp. Black and Ivory Cheese Sampler paper
~Recollections scraps
~Costco Silver reversible gift wrap
~KNK Zenith Zing
~Make The Cut Software
~Deja Views paper Pack Your Bags

This is going to a dear family member who has a warped sense of humor just like me.  She is going to just love this.  No tutorial on how I made this one.  It's pretty straight forward.  I cut the words for the cheese names out of the Cheese Sampler paper.  Next I made view 2 and 3 from the ScrappyDew file.  The words were done in a modified print and cut.  In other words, I printed the words inside of the basic shape.  Turned off the words in Make The Cut and using the registration marks cut the basic shape.  I then found the Pack your Bags paper in my stash.  Cut out squares and presto change-o the card is finished.  Of course if you have any questions leave a comment and I will respond.

So here is what I came up with...

Isn't this just fabulous!

Got creative with the inside.

I love laughing cow cheese, had to raid the fridge for picture props

This is the envelope

So what do you think?  It really came together well.  I have a birthday tag I am finishing and I will show you the tag and presents in the coming weeks.

So happy you could stop by today.  Next week I should have a new card design using ScrappyDew files and some of my new paper stash.  (cleaned out Tuesday Morning and got a ton of Graphic 45 papers and stuff) Have a great week!

Bright blessings, Jana
